Oska – Barking Owl

Scientific Name: Ninox connivens
Oska is famous for entertaining the crowd with his bark. The ‘ wuf wuf’, sounds very much like a dog. Watch out for his head rotation and grumpy face.
Oska was born in captivity at Eagles Heritage in October 2005 and passed onto the Western Australian birds of Prey Centre for educaitonal displays.
Nicknamed the ‘Winking Owl’ and Oska always winks with his left eye.

Oska was my closest and dearest bird friend. The enjoyment that we had entertaining people for over a decade was a privilege to myself and those who become a part of Oska’s life. Thank you Oska for making this world a better place you are dearly missed.
